In every diocese and to the extent that pastoral circumstances suggest it, a pastoral council is to be constituted which under the authority of the bishop investigates, considers, and proposes practical conclusions about those things which pertain to pastoral works in the diocese.”
Canon 511, Code of Canon Law, 1983
The Diocesan Pastoral Council is the Bishop’s Pastoral Council and comprised of appointed members representing all sectors of the diocese in offering support to the bishop’s pastoral ministry. It is a consultative body and we welcome your feedback.
